Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I love N. CA

Great roads - I've been lucky enough to ride each of them, although I live in the southern half of the state.

No way, many have contributed beautiful pics to this thread, some of VA would be cool. As soon as I get a decent camera, I will add some of upstate NY.

Central PA farmlands.

From today's ride, a few miles from my house.



Towards the end of the ride, before turning around to head back home.



Excuse the quality, shot with a cellphone.

I've got to get up to Massachusetts for some cycling. I didn't ride much when I lived there, but the roads were awesome for riding. Maybe a little narrow, given the traffic.

Great photos. I love the big open road photos from the western states, but also like the close-in scenery in the east.

Waterloo Rd. Warrenton, VA



Aaron Mountain Rd., near Washington, VA



Gid Brown Hollow Rd. Washington, VA (Shenandoah Mountains in the distance.)
